Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a GE Front load dryer Model # DCVH660EH3BB and the power will not come on. I have checked the breaker and the cord and the wall connection. I have checked the door as well. The light comes on when the door is open but the power will not come on to start the dryer. I think it might be a fuse but i do not know which one. Also is there a way to get the lint out of the very bottom of the dryer? Its trapped in there.

I have a GE dryer model #DCVH660EH3BB, it powers on but when I press the start button it beeps twice at me and won't start the cycle. The lint trap and vent have both been thoroughly cleaned.


From the manual...
Problem
Cannot make a selection and the dryer beeps twice.

Possible Cause
The DRYNESS LEVEL, TEMP or OPTION that you are trying to select is incompatible with the chosen dry cycle.

Link to your manual, troubleshooting starts on page 24.

Will not dry no heat ge model dde9500ramad


Well it is not the fuse because it still runs just no heat. I would first try to reset the breaker and make sure 240 volts is getting to the dryer. Dryer motors work on 120 volts. The heater needs 240 to opperate. Sometimes the breaker will trip on the high load heat side or simply wear out. If that is good then you must check the element, To do so you need to remove the drum. You start by raising the top then getting the front off; then you take the belt idler loose and yank out the drum. The heater element is on the back wall of the dryer.

MY OLD GE ELECTRIC DRYER TURNS ON BUT WILL NOT HEAT


Hi,


Make sure you check these to fix the problem.
  • Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

  • Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

  • A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.


Thank you

My ge profile dryer won't start.I checked the breakers and they were ok. Any other suggestions?


Hi,
  • Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

  • If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

  • Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.
Hope this will fix your problem for sure.

Hoover 0910dryer not heating. element replaced not long ago


Hi, the possible causes are: Possible Causes: The wall receptacle, power cord (plug) and electrical supply must be in good condition and wired correctly for the dryer to heat.
  • Supply Issue - Loose or missing connection on supply wire from circuit breaker.
  • Plug Issue - Loose or missing connection in the wall. Defective, worn or damaged wall plug.
  • Cord Issue - Loose, missing or incorrect connection of the power cord to the dryer terminals.
If gas dryer and does not heat, Gas Dryer heats with a gas burner, make sure the gas supply line valve is open.
Also, for electric dryer,
Electric dryers require two 30 amp breakers or fuses in the house electrical box to run and heat. If one breaker is tripped or one fuse is blown, the motor, the timer and lights can work but the dryer will not heat.

My GE DPSB620ECWW does not light up the pannel or


Check circuit breaker at the house electric panel, if good, check for voltage (220/240)volts at the receptacle that the dryer power cord plugs into, if good, check for voltage(220/240)volts at the dryer terminal block where the dryer power cord connects to the dryer, if good, check voltages at the dryer power transformer, should be 220/240 volts for motor,and 110/115 volts control power for dryer controls, you should find the failure within these inspections/testing.
Good Luck !

What size breaker is reommended for electric dryer 220V?


Electric dryer uses a double pole 30 Amp breaker. Check for a loose electrical connection. Check that the screws holding the wires on the breaker itself are tight. Next, check the screws for the ground / neutral in the breaker box. Next, check all the connections in the dryer recepticle (where the dryer cord plugs into the wall) Finally, check the connections where the cord connects onto the dryer. If all connections listed were good tight connections, replace breaker.
